The referees make their way to the center. The Kolkata players make their way out and take up their respective positions on the field. After them are Bangalore’s openers Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal. Pat Cummins to start with the ball for Kolkata. Let’s play…
Pat Cummins is up for a chat. Says the support staff deserve full credit for organizing this tournament. There is no pressure on the players, just to focus on their game. Cummins believes that as bowlers they have finished games amazingly. On the battle front, he has the feeling that a few games could not be completed properly.
Kolkata (plays XI) – Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Tom Banton (INSTEAD OF SUNIL NARINE), Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (WK / C), Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy .
Bangalore (plays XI) – Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers (WK), Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj (INSTEAD OF GURKEERAT SINGH MANN) , Yuzvendra Chahal.
Dinesh Karthik, the captain of Kolkata, says he has no problems with bowling first. Says they pulled a rabbit out of the hat in the last game. Declares it went the way from Punjab but Kolkata managed to pull it back. About the changes, Karthik says that Banton is coming for Narine.
Virat Kohli, the Bangalore skipper, says the surface is getting slower. Indicates that the more players play it running across the field, the more it slows down. Says it’s important to keep doing what they’ve been good at. Adds that Morris’s submission has been a big boost. Indicates that it is important to make a good start and that the intention must be there. Kohli says about the changes that Mohammed Siraj Gurkeerat Singh Mann will replace.
TOSS – It’s time for the flip of the coin. It lands in Bangalore’s favor and they choose to hit!
The news from Sharjah is that Tom Banton is getting his cap for Kolkata. Well, that’s a change we can confirm.
Pitch Report – Kevin Pietersen sits in the middle for the Pitch Report. He says there isn’t much shine that you would expect. It’s very dark, he says. It’s very Chinnaswamy-ish, KP dear. He further believes that spinners benefited from bowling slower balls and that both teams would have made a note of it. Indicates that it is important to respect the wicket.
Kohli vs Karthik! Bangalore and Kolkata, two battle giants will soon be closing horns. It’s on the battlefield of the sixes – Sharjah! Where 200 is a data … or is it? Well, in the last few games here we’ve only had one inning where a team won more than 200. Mumbai had kept Hyderabad under 180 to win by a comfortable margin. Delhi managed to win with 46 points after posting 184 points in their last game in this field. Hmm … what awaits us now? Let’s see as we bring you the toss and team updates in a while …
